SHOCKING scenes of violence have emerged from the Greek cup final between PAOK and AEK Athens.
Riot police rushed to tackle the raging hooligans as flares were lit – leading to kick off being delayed.
Fans were pictured using a variety of objects as weapons – including a chair and poles.
The two sides were set to compete at the Panthessaliko Stadium but the violence meant the 6.30pm kick off could not get underway.
Fans climbed over a fence in the stadium as supporters ran riot, with police attempting to control them.
Police used tear gas in an attempt to diffuse the violence, while riot shields were also used.
This comes after there were doubts the game would go ahead after PAOK were unwilling to play at the OAKA stadium, which was the initial destination for the final.
PAOK then comprimised with officials after the final was moved to the Panthessaliko Stadium.
